Over the last 40 years, many of us in California have seen private land owners (developers, ranchers, timber owners, and mining interests) close their properties to historic OHV recreation. They have a right to exercise their private property rights.
However, OHVers have a rare opportunity to secure long-term access to existing OHV recreation that is occurring on private property near the Jawbone OHV Area. The CA OHV Program has been working hard to purchase about 59 privately owned parcels in an effort to secure said lands for long-term OHV use.
California State Parks will conduct two public workshops as part of the comprehensive public involvement program for the Ocotillo Wells SVRA General Plan and EIR. The format of both workshops will be identical.

NEEDLES — Asked what folks in Needles could help Congressman Paul Cook with, field representative Dawn Rowe quickly answered, “the Johnson Valley National Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Area.”
Introduced as H.R. 1676 in April, the plan was added to the National Defense Authorization Act approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on June 14. “The end goal is to ensure that the NDAA still has this Johnson Valley language in it when it reaches the President’s desk later this year,” Cooks said at the time. “A lot can happen as the NDAA moves through the Senate, so it’s essential for supporters of my proposal to let Senators know how important it is to protect Johnson Valley for recreational use.”
